Disambiguation link notification for August 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jeremy Corbyn, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Palestinian. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Proposed deletion of Roc Ordman[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Roc Ordman has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No independent sources about the subject, only primary references to his publications. Work in "life extension" is a massive red flag, but there's no independent evaluation of the validity of his work, raising substantial WP:NPOV concerns. At least one of the cites is in a predatory open-access journal, again a massive red flag.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Guy (Help!) 13:07, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Kati Whitaker[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Kati Whitaker, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.whistledown.net/talent/kati-whitaker/.

It is possible that the bot was mistaken and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted.

Copyright problem: Kati Whitaker[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Kati Whitaker, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material. This article appears to contain material copied from http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/crossing_continents/6270834.stm and/or http://www.whistledown.net/talent/kati-whitaker/, and therefore to constitute a violation of Wikipedia's copyright policies. The copyrighted text has been or will soon be deleted. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators are liable to be blocked from editing.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under license allowed by Wikipedia, then you should do one of the following:

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

If you would like to begin working on a new version of the article you may do so at this temporary page. Leave a note at Talk:Kati Whitaker saying you have done so and an administrator will move the new article into place once the issue is resolved.

Thank you, and please feel welcome to continue contributing to Wikipedia. Happy editing! Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 13:01, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

I've also blanked and listed Ben Homer, where there appears to be foundational copying from here and here. That bothers me, as I'd hoped the Kati Whitaker problem was a one-off slip-of-the-brain. Are there also other pages where you have copied more or less directly from the sources? If so, it'd be helpful if you could mention them here. Thank you, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 22:38, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Ben Homer is a very bare bones article containing mostly short factual statements. There are sources for these facts which are stated in the article. Facts cannot be copyrighted. I rephrased the facts into a wikipedia article. Please supply examples where you think I copied en block because I cant see them. I realise that Wikipedia has to avoid copyright issues but I think you are being over zealous here. Lumos3 (talk) 09:09, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
On Kati Whitaker the detected so called violations are all titles of awards she has received. These are the names of the awards. They are minimal factual statements. Lumos3 (talk) 09:14, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes, there's always a risk that I'm being over-zealous, though I try not to be; an advantage of listing an article at WP:CP is that other people will see it, and (I hope) someone else will evaluate the extent of the problem if there is one. Meanwhile, I'm sorry, but I just can't agree that there's no violation in either of these articles. In Kati Whitaker, This tool shows quite substantial copying from one of the sources that carry this material (neither I nor the tool can guess which one!). Of course some of that overlap is due to proper names which can't be rephrased; but a lot of it is due to copying material that should have been written in your own words. Similarly, in Ben Homer, there seems to have been copying from at least two (1, 2) of the cited sources. And I'm sorry, but [Ben Homer/Temp isn't acceptable either.
I also had to remove copyvio from Bettisia Gozzadini – see this comparison. If you think there might be other pages you've worked on with similar problems, it'd be helpful if you'd mention them here – perhaps you could go through some of your past contribs? Thanks, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 17:43, 4 April 2016 (UTC)


Citation for the age of Bettisia Gozzadini[edit]

Greetings Lumos3. I'm currently working on a danish article about Bettisia Gozzadini and I've run into a bit of a problem regarding her lifespan. In the en-wiki article her lifespan is listed as 1209-1261 which I was able to find one source for.[1] The problem is the source doesn't say where it got this info from and the main focus of the paper isn't Bettisia Gozzadini, she is just mentioned briefly. I've been trying to find some journal articles listing her lifespan, but now I've found articles that claim she was teaching law as late as 1296[2][3] which doesn't fit with the original lifespan. I can see you added the lifespan to the en-wiki article in this edit back in 2008, do you remember where you got that information from. It would be most helpful as I'm at quite a loss at what to do with two sources that contradict each other. Thanks! Best Regards, InsaneHacker (🗪) 14:15, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

I think the sources I used in 2008 have now been removed from the www. Here is a personal blog of Janna Brancolini, a Fulbright Scholar on a trip to Italy. [1] . It describes the bust of Gozzadini in the Museo della Storia di Bologna sculpted by Casa Fibbia sometime between 1680 and 1690. It states her birth and death dates as MCCXXXXII. Obyt MCCLXI. (1223 - 1261) . I think this should be used as the source. Lumos3 (talk) 21:11, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
That looks good, thanks for the help! Best Regards, InsaneHacker (🗪) 07:10, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Er, not quite. MCCXXXXII is 1242, not 1223, and is a floruit date (the year she gave the funeral oration for Enrico della Fratta), not a date of birth; "Casa Fibbia" is a palace (the Palazzo Fibbia Fabbri), not a sculptor. A blog is not usually a reliable source. Her dates are given as 1209–1261 in numerous presumably reliable sources including this piece by the late lamented Umberto Eco and this page of the Museo della Città di Bologna. This book from 1845 gives her date of death as 2 November 1261. I'm less confident about this page supposedly archived from the website of the Comune of Bologna (which would be RS). She's not in the Dizionario biografico degli italiani. HTH, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 11:39, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
I wasn't suggestion the blog itself was a source, but it attests to the existence of the statue which itself is the source. Public inscriptions can be reliable sources. Good point about he floruit date , i've not heard of these. An CC image of the sculpture could be a free use image of the subject. Lumos3 (talk) 15:27, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Of course; I was actually trying to suggest that a blog is not a reliable source even for the text of an inscription. I think it might be difficult to find a photo of the sculpture because of the restrictive laws in Italy on freedom of panorama and the rights in cultural heritage (which belong to the State). Meanwhile, I've added a nineteenth-century engraving to the page, as you may have seen.
It seems to me that the Londa Schiebinger sources cited by InsaneHacker are simply wrong: the chances of a Mediaeval person being active at 87 are low indeed; the chances of that person still being able to lecture 35 years after death are much slimmer. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 11:42, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
I completely agree with you Justlettersandnumbers about the 1296 date being fishy. The problem is that it's written in a journal article from a fairly respectable journal (and Schiebinger is a respected academic) and some other works (although I'm pretty sure the latter got their data from the former). I think I'll just list the 1209-1261 date with a footnote explaining that some sources dispute this. Thanks for the sources on her lifespan. I will cut myself some slack for not coming across these myself though as I have no proficiency in Italian at all Face-tongue.svg Best Regards, InsaneHacker (🗪) 12:54, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Ligretto card game box.jpg.

Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Hello[edit]

I'm new on this. I'd like to open a new reference: ECOLIBERALISM in English and ECOLIBERALISMO in Spanish. Last year I published a book with this name. I built a wiki page, but there is not on Wikipedia any more. I don't know if I didn't save it correctly,... In any case. I've tried again to edit a page called Ecoliberalism, but the system only leave me open a reference of my user "User:Thomeu62". May you help me to begin with this job? Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thomeu62 (talkcontribs) 16:58, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Is ecoliberalism a term used in public discussion by others? It may be your article was deleted because it only cited your own book and was seen as self promotion. You would need to write an article that cites at least two or three other sources apart from your own that use and explain the term , and not give undue prominence to your book. I see you've made two edits which link to your own work and website.I suggest you learn the Wikipedia rules by first doing minor edits to articles of interest to you and citing the source justifying the edit from places other than your own writing. You should also disclose on your own Wikipedia page that you are a published author and may have a conflict of interest . Being an expert in an area is not in itself a justification that what you say is true and can be published here without stating its sources. Everything on Wikipedia must be cited to a reliable source ( and not your own ). Take a look at the guidelines on conflict of interest Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest. Being a subject expert is not itself a conflict of interest but undue promotion of your own book is. Hope this helps . Lumos3 (talk) 10:55, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 10:00, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Cannons (house)[edit]

Hi there,

I am an infrequent editor nowadays and have only just seen the additions you have made to Cannons (house) which is one of the very first articles that I ever wrote, way, way back in the dark ages. Think it may also have been my first ever WP:GA so I have a massive (and probably irrational) sentimental attachment to it. Really, really enjoyed reading the extra information you have added. Thank you!

Kind regards, nancy 08:56, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi Lumos3 -- I have been thinking that there are fewer women in the Wikipedia than there should be. For example, Donata Francescato, the Italian expert on community psychology and gender roles. I have created a Wikipedia page for her, but don't know how to upload it or whether I have done it the right way. My time is a little tight so I was thinking of hiring someone to help me do it. Do you know how I should proceed? I have often edited the Wikipedia but never written an article. Thank you.

  I am not even sure that I am communicating with you in the right way.  I couldn't figure out how to send a message to you.   Jmansbridge (talk) 20:58, 19 March 2017 (UTC) Jane Mansbridge (Harvard)
Dear Jane, I'm glad to help. First if you look in the lefthand side bar when in my User page or Talk page you will see a link 'Email this user' . This allows you to send me a private email message if you prefer.
Your subject Donata Francescato certainly seems to satisfy Wikipedia's notability criteria since she is a well published author from major publishing houses as well as a noted academic. To launch your article simply put the name Donata Francescato into the wikipedia search box. It will return no articles but below it will ask if you want to start the article and provide you with a red link. Click on the red link and you will be taken straight into edit mode in the new article. Copy in your material , fill in the edit summary and click save. And there you have it.
Additional tasks then are to add hyperlinks to other wikipedia articles, add categories, and add sources . Since your article is of a living person you will need to add the 'Living people' category. It will then be given extra scrutiny as living people have extra rights as to its factual accuracy and can litigate against wikipedia if they are false.
You can also weave the article into the wikipedia fabric by linking to it at appropriate places in other articles.

PS Unlike other form of publishing a Creative Commons Wikipedia article is no longer you property. Other editors will be along to add changes and hopefully improve it. If you think they are wrong you can in turn improve on their changes or engage in civil dialogue on the articles talk page.Lumos3 (talk) 17:53, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Reassessment?[edit]

Hi Lumos3,

I've recently overhauled the Box Moor Trust, building upon the good work you had already done. Whilst I'm familiar with Wikipedia, I'm completely oblivious to WikiProjects and other 'behind the scenes' parts of the site. I noticed that you're a member of Project Hertfordshire; could you advise the best way to 'apply' for the article to get re-rated? I would imagine that it is no longer a stub-class article!

Thanks

Mark


Anicia[edit]

I periodically go through Category:Ancient Greek people stubs to find articles to work on, and Anicia which you created last year caught my eye. Do you still have access to the Index to Women of the World? Because apart from the fact that that is cited in the article, I can find no evidence of any mention of Anicia... well, anywhere, really. If you do, I would be very grateful if you could tell me whether the author gives any insight as to what her sources about Anicia are (or, alternatively, if you could scan the relevant pages and send them to me).

Thanks,

Dear Caeciliusinhort, I created this as part of a project that was trying to creates articles for women on Wikipedia who were 'red linked' . This comes from the crater on Venus which was given the name by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) . All features on Venus are named after goddesses or women form antiquity. I suppose the IAU had a copy of Index to Women of the World when compiling their list of names. I took the IAU to be an authoritative source in its own right. I've never seen the book. I suggest you might get a copy through a library. Lumos3 (talk) 10:04, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
PS Theres an ecopy here. But there may be a hidden charge to access it as it wants a CC number but promises not to charge from it. Lumos3 (talk) 10:12, 28 July 2017 (UTC) http://listec.co.uk/index/to/index_to_women_of_the_world_from_ancient_to_modern_times.pdf
Ah, no worries if you don't have access to the book; I'll track it down next time I'm at a decent library. Thanks anyway. Caeciliusinhorto (talk) 11:25, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
